Welcome return for Ryde Inshore Rescue

RYDE Inshore Rescue has one of its life-saving RIBs back in action, two months after a vandalism attack.

The Isle of Wight community rallied behind the independent rescue organisation after the attack in July, in which both its boats were stabbed multiple times — forcing them to be withdrawn from service.

But the group announced today (Thursday) on Twitter that Ryde Rescue 1 was back following repairs on the mainland.
